How to create a beautiful rock waterfall in your backyard garden

Custom rock waterfalls do not only add to the beauty of your surroundings, they also add serenity and peace to it.

Try to sit near one. You will find yourself staring at the pretty picture that it presents.

You will also find the sound of water amazingly soothing.

There are persons that do not like the idea of having waterfalls in their garden.

One reason is that they are afraid that mosquitoes might make it their breeding ground. Another reason is that it needs to be maintained regularly.

Both of these fears are totally unwarranted:

A waterfall is in constant motion and therefore insects will not be able to breed on it. And you waterfall does not have to be maintained every day. You only have to check the fishes in the pond and the plants that are growing around it from time to time.

If you do not have the time for these things, you can opt for a pond -ess custom rock waterfall. Or better yet, have it placed in a location where it will be free from elements that might cause the waterfall to not work properly.

Experts are saying that having flowers around the waterfall is not a good idea. This is because its blossoms and leaves will fall in time. When it does, it might go directly to the water and block the pump. If this happens, you can expect failures in the way your waterfall is functioning.

The same will happen if your rock waterfall is located in areas with excess soil and debris. If your waterfall is located in areas with an abundance of debris and soil, there is a possibility that some of them might get into your waterfall.

You should take some extra precaution if you do not have any filter to separate the good elements from the bad.

Creating a custom rock waterfall

Having a custom rock waterfall does not have to be expensive. You can actually create one yourself.

All you need is a pool liner and some stones. Begin by digging up the hole. It is up to you how large the hole will be.

Buy some pool liner over. Once you have placed them on the pool, you can out the stones on the edges, to hold the liner and keep it hidden in view at the same time.

Once the base is solid enough, stack the stones one atop another. Keep doing this until you achieve the feature that you want.

After that, you can prepare the pump that will bring the water into your waterfall. Once all this is accomplished, you can now sit back and enjoy the view and the sound of what you have created.

Whatever feature you want your rock waterfall to have, keep in mind that the essence behind it all is to make it look as natural as possible. If you have it in your garden, make sure that it blends with its surroundings well.

For your rock waterfall, it would look amazing if you try and have a stone landscape around it. This kind of design will also be helpful in maintaining that the garden is kept inside the waterfall and not outside of it.

Creating a custom rock waterfall is easy if you already have all the materials at hand. Just as long as you have an idea how it will look like, there are no problems to be encountered in the process of building that rock waterfall.
